Walker Bay 8 with the floatation tube
 
Another dinghy question. After searching Walker Bay 8 on this forum I did not find any comments on this dinghy with the tube installed. Would like to know good or bad about this dinghy. I think it is too tipsy without the tube, but maybe with the tube?

I had the 10 footer on a previous boat with a sail rig. Walker Bay calls it a RID and with the tubes it is very stable. I agree that without the tubes it would be very tippy. A 2HP honda powered it to go as fast as it could go - about 4 knots.

"Tipsy" is in the eye of the beholder.
